I talk a lot about email here on Sssimpli, mainly because it is, or at least can be, the central nervous system of your online identity, or can be.
Signing up for new services, by and large, still requires you to fork over your email account. Notifications from services keep pouring in, and your inbox can quickly become a labyrinth difficult to navigate. Many startups have attempted to solve this problem, but few succeed as elegantly as Unroll.me
Currently, supported services include Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and AOL. More are "coming soon." The premise is simple. Hand over your email account, and Unroll.me will scour your inbox for emails from which you can unsubscribe. It will then present you with a list of those items. From that list, you can decide what you’d like to do with them.
Next to each item is a “plus” and “minus” button. If you’d like to unsubscribe from an email subscription, just click the minus button, and the service will do the work for you. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. (One small caveat, though: at a certain point, you'll be prompted to tweet or share a promotional snippet about the service to to keep unsubscribe feature). The remaining items will fall into one of two categories- either you’d like them to remain unaffected by Unroll.me, showing up in your inbox as they always have, or you can “roll” them into a once-a-day email, delivered at a time of your choosing- morning, afternoon, or evening.
It’s really that easy. Most “inbox cleaners” will tidy up your inbox by consolidating bulk emails into a manageable format. The ability to so simply unsubscribe from unwanted emails en masse, however, is a feature unique to Unroll.me (at least to my knowledge). It’s a dead simple service that gets you many steps closer to inbox zero.
Unroll.me is in private beta, but I’ve got a few invites left. If you’d like one, just let me know.
Update: It appears that the service is only accepting invites for Gmail addresses for now. If you'd like an invite, make sure you include (or send from) your Gmail account.
